My 27 Week Pregnant Self

Time is flying by. 27 weeks already.
"Your baby now weighs nearly 2 pounds/ 875 grams and measures 14.5 inches/ 36.6 centimetres from head to toe. She can now open and close her eyes, sleeps and wakes at regular intervals, and may suck a finger or thumb. Although they're still immature, your baby's lungs will function with some medical help." [ BabyCenter ]
88 days to go.

Although I haven't felt like I've grown much in the past month, the photos don't lie.

Month 4, 5 and 6

On June 7 we found out it's a girl!

June 15 was my 3rd doctor's appointment. I had my diabetes test and now weigh 119lbs.

Movement: Hers: Now that she's been moving for awhile, I don't notice it as much. And it seems that as soon as I do notice her moving, she stops as soon as I put my hand on my belly to feel. Still no crazy big kicks or anything, but she's definitely a mover.

Mine: Standing up is finally not as easy as it used to be. I had pretty bad back pain over the weekend which slowed me down a lot, then some leg pain right after that. Today it was some butt muscle pain. I feel like I'm in my 60s with all my on and off again pain.

Clothing: Absolutely none of my pre-pregnancy jeans or dress pants fit at all. I still fit in the ones Mom gave me, but the belt is a notch looser than when she first gave me the pants. My shirts mostly still fit, but I did finally buy a couple of maternity tank tops in anticipation of summer. But since nice weather is never going to get here, maybe I should've bought sweaters instead. I bought some shorts to get me through the summer. They're regular shorts, but 2-3 sizes bigger than usual. Haven't really been able to wear them yet since it feels like fall weather.

Sleep: I spent a week being sick and not being able to breathe through my nose, which got me back into the habit of sleeping on my back a lot. I still sleep on my side a lot as well, but if I roll over too fast I feel a little queasy for a few moments.

Eating: I still feel hungry at the drop of a hat. My appetite isn't anything crazy, but still more than before pregnancy of course. Every once in awhile I still get that 'really full' feeling, kind of like my belly took a growth spurt.

Baby Shower: I made and sent out all the invitations. I did decide to reveal the gender through the invitations.

Etc: I decided on a Super Mario / Princess Peach theme for the baby's bedroom. I've started making some of the wall decor myself and have looked into getting a quilt made.

So far we're still feeling pretty good. Still trying to think of names.

Month 5 - 22 weeks
